Autism Research Program at the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research conducts research to discover the genetic and environmental risk factors of autism spectrum disorders. Kaiser Permanente patients and families who participate in our studies are helping to further research. To learn how you can help science to discover the causes of autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), please visit the Research page. We believe that the path to prevention starts with research, and your participation is very important.
We hope this information helps to answer some of your questions about autism spectrum disorders, interests you in our important research, and provides you access to support services and other parenting resources. If you have additional questions, please
